On the next Fresh Air, we talk about the Chicago 7 trial, with Jon Wiener. Seven, initially eight, activists against the war in Vietnam were accused of crossing state lines and conspiring to riot in Chicago, when the 1968 Democratic National Convention was underway. Wiener’s book has been reprinted to coincide with Aaron Sorkin’s film about the trial. Join us.
Fresh Air can be heard weekdays at 4:00 pm on KRCB-FM (and again at 12:00 am Tuesday through Friday)! / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the FREE KRCB Mobile App which you can download for your favorite mobile device.
